I am selling my home without a broker on free listing services. Do I pay the buyer's broker?

Response

Hi,You are under no obligation to pay the broker. However, are you aware that the nationwide average for home sold by brokers is 23% higher than homes sold without brokers? Even after you remove the 5 or 6% brokers fee, the net is still 17 or 18% higher, plus the broker pays all the marketing advertising costs. Do yourself a favor and hire a broker

Response

1]If the broker brought the buyer to your house, there is an implied agreement that he would be compensated if that buyer purchased your house.2] Did you have your home appraised to make sure you were selling it at the correct price? I've seen homeowners sell properties without brokers over the years who left thousands of dollars on the table. Remember that homes sold by brokers average price is 15% higher than owner sales. Even when your deduct the broker fee, the owner sold property is 10% lower. What is 10% of your sales price?

why are you so off on your zestimate on my home?????????

Answer

Hi,As a full time broker with 30 years experience in the business, I just want to simplify why Zillow zestimates are sometimes so far off. There mechanism will search all closed sales within a zip code, and average their zestimate. Certain zip codes in Brooklyn could contain both houses that sell for $300,000-500,000 and houses that sell for $2,000,000-$3,000,000, so the average might be $1,500,000, more than a million dollars off the right price for the lower price AND the higher price houses!Hope this helps.All the best,Sal CappiAssociate Broker[phone number deleted by Zillow moderator.

Your valuations are bogus. I am reporting Zillow to the FTC and the GA Consumer State of Affairs

Answer

At the bottom of Zillows page is a link for Zestimate values and accuracy. No homeowner should think that a numbers crunching computer can factor in all the amenities that differentiate values in similar neighborhoods. This link will give you an idea as to what type of accuracy you can expect for your area, Most are off by 20%+ and could be even higher, where housing stock is not homogeneous. If you are contemplating buying or selling a home and want pricing information you can count on, either hire a licensed appraisor, or an experienced realtor!
